of our students are going in to teach for america. >> i'm going to ask one more question and then turn it over to the audience. my last question will be on immigration. you have spoken on the need for the dream act. can you talk about that? >> what first drew my attention was my first year of president a group of students came to see me, about 12 of them. they were all undocumented. they said we want you to support the dream act. they describe to me their lives. i was just stunned by their stories of growing up usually in the southwest or the west in families where they had no idea they were undocumented. then there came a moment with the needed documentation and they realize they were not citizens. suddenly they were thrust into this awareness of a whole nother world of not flying on planes to get back from vacation or not going home for vacation at all because they cannot travel are not being able to imagine medical school because they needed documentation to do that. i thought this is awful. do you come to this question as a human rights or as an economic development? both. here are

a responsibility to the people of america to take action. we've been through this, as again the president mentioned, a number of different times. i deal with it on a daily basis. and my fellow mayors, mayors like mayor bloomberg and mayor emanuel in chicago or mayor blake in baltimore, kasim reed in atlanta. all of us deal with an daily onslaught of violence. this is what this is about. it's about violence. >> but, mayor, what can we -- what more can we do? specifically, what do we need to be doing that we are not doing right now? >> there are a number of things that we can do. there is no reason, none, zero, for any civilian to have an assault weapon or an assault rifle or an assault-type weapon with huge clips. news reports seem to indicate that at least one of the weapons may have been a handgun with 17-round clip capacity and maybe the other 10, 11, or 12. there's only one purpose for these weapons. apparently, again, news accounts indicate that the semi-automatic rifle may have been the most deadly weapon. many of the children, again, news indicates two shots to them. that is virtually an exec
